“Beautiful Food: What To Eat and How To Make It”
Evening Classes
University School of Nashville

As we become increasingly aware of the need to eat healthier foods, the often-conflicting information about what is “healthy” can be daunting. Equally confusing is the shopping and preparation—not to mention the challenges of making better food choices for an entire family, or a busy lifestyle. Taught by LAURA BUTTON, creator of Journey To Bliss Raw Foods, this class will help you choose what to eat and how to make it. With a few simple techniques, and some basic guidelines, you will have the knowledge and confidence to feed yourself, and those you care for, the most beautiful food in the world. It will also be the fastest and easiest to prepare, the most beneficial to your health, the most ethical for the planet, and the least expensive. (Allergen statement: food in this class will include tree nuts, but not peanuts.) Age 16 and up.

“Food as Fuel
Nothing is more important than the food we consume and its ability to nourish and heal us. In our fast-paced, instant-gratification culture, the thoughtful preparation of healthy meals is sometimes neglected. Participants will reconnect to the value of their own bodies through the simple act of eating clean, fresh, nourishing food. Join Laura as she teaches her recipe-free process for creating wonderful, fast food that is superior in nutrition, portable and easily made from the fresh food you have on hand.

We will learn why our food choices matter—for our individual health, our communities, and our planet. Come hungry, and feast on the best food on Earth.
